Phil Murphy Endorses Sweeney for Senate

NEWARK – Phil Murphy released the following statement today endorsing Senate President Steve Sweeney for re-election to the New Jersey Senate:

“I am pleased to endorse Senator Sweeney for re-election, and look forward to running together on a platform of growing our middle class and creating a new economy based on innovation, good-paying jobs, and fairness for workers — including equal pay for equal work.

“Steve and I share many of the same goals for the years ahead: raising the minimum wage, repairing our dangerously outdated infrastructure, creating ‘green’ jobs in the alternative energy field, and fully funding Planned Parenthood and ending Chris Christie’s politically motivated war on women.

“I look forward to working with Steve to make New Jersey a state that once again works for all of us.”
